Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born Ashtead, Surrey, England 1940.
Researched Chatfield around the world and have over 39,100 names and records on a GEDCOM file available to download plus 18,220 UK Chatfield bmd's from 1837 - 2007 with many back to the 1500's as well as separate Australia, New Zealand and South Africa bmd.
Now retired and living in France. A Google Search 'Chatfield Chazelles' finds me. Genealogists are welcome to come and visit, I have B&B but obviously have very special low rates for Chatfield connected genealogists.
Photo is of All Saints Street, Hastings, Sussex where some of my ancestors lived in the 1800's. It has hardly changed for centuries.

Hello,
I'm not sure if you are aware, but there is an edit tab at the upper right hand side of the memorial. If you click on that, you are able to send changes to the person maintaining it. You can add name, dates, places, etc... It is much easier for those who receive so many corrections to make them efficiently.

Sending the SSDI info was nice, and I pulled the dates, but other info is missing... like places. If you come across that, please don't hesitate to send me an edit.

Thank you!

Hi Colin
Re: Cornelia Chatfield 158937749
Arthur Ernest Chatfield 158934619
Ernest Henry Chatfield 168545762

All have had their ashes spread on the rose garden and names in the book of memories, I have photographed the book today and all Kelvin Grove Cemetery Chatfield's are now photographed and added to their memorials. Always happy to help with anything in the Palmerston North area, just sing out if I can help with anything more. All the best Wendy

Ernest Henry Chatfield/Chatfeild
Hi Colin. I hope you got my email I sent via your website Re: The three Chatfield newspaper clippings. Good news to report, both Armanalla and Ernest Chatfield were cremated at the Kelvin Grove Crematorium and their ashes were spread on the rose garden. Kelvin Grove Cemetery started cremating in 1954.

The office lady was very helpful, she informed me that the burial records were up dated when the website was up dated in the last six months. It use to look like this:
Surname: CHATFIELD
First Names: ARMANALLA
Gender: Female
Occupation: WIDOW
Address: 78 MANSON STREET
Denomination: Not Known
Age at Death: 74Y
Date of Death: 16/11/1956
Place of Death: UN-KNOWN
Date of Cremation: 19/11/1956
Warrant Type: CREMATION
Cemetery: Kelvin Grove Cemetery & Crem
Head Stone:
Funeral Director: THOMAS GRIGGS & SON LTD
Book of Memories: YES

.... and now looks like this

Surname: CHATFIELD
First name: ARMANALLA
Gender: Female
Occupation: WIDOW
Address: 78 MANSON STREET
Denomination: Not Known
Age at Death: 74Y

Book of Memories: YES

In the absence of YES been written beside the HEADSTONE:(YES) depicts that there is no headstone. I have photographed the book of memories, Armanalla's entry. And will add to her listing for you.

It was only when I got home I cottoned onto the possible spelling mistake for Ernest Henry Chatfield and found him spelt as 'feild' and not the correct spelling of 'field' I should have thought of that sooner as all my family are Fielding's and I always have to check Feilding spelling. I will go back and photograph Ernest book of memories for you. Lucky I only live 1km from the cemetery and pop down there often. I will let you set up a listing for Ernest then I will add the photos when I have them.

Surname: CHATFEILD

Ernest Henry Chatfield
If we can find Ernest we might find Armanalla. I see Ernest died in Palmerston North and Internal Affairs have a death date of 10 May 1955 (1955/22878 Chatfield Ernest Henry 78Y). There are no burial records for him at Kelvin Grove Cemetery and I cant find a burial for him on the NZ Genealogy Burial Disk. I will look in the PNCC Library/Newspapers archives. Could the family have taken them both back to Australia. Will report back. Best regards Wendy

Armanalla Chatfield
Hi Colin - (Palmerston North City Council burial records) Google PNCC Cemetery Search and enter her name and you will find no burial information and only a warrant for cremation, no burial. On her memorial (copy and paste information) if there was a headstone there would be YES beside. I will get to the cemetery on Monday before the office closes, and check the book of memories. I have removed photo. Best regards Wendy

It was just a chance too. I could easily have missed it.

All transferred. Are you aware that deceased online has all the Kent and Sussex burials registered. Quite useful to check dates and names.
